GOLDSTAR Reviewers Say:
"Absolutely fantastic serious play with a lot of laughs. The acting was superb; you won't see better anywhere. With only three rows of seats in the theater, you're right there. Best play I've seen in a while, on or off B'way. Highly recommended."
 
"Wow! These five actors dug deep and projected the gamut of human emotion--passion, jealousy, fear, anger, rage, love, hate, glee and took us along for the ride. Moving, challenging and relatable. The set design and props nearly flawless. The stage crew, entertaining in their own right, and direction-- masterful."

SHOW-SCORE Says:
"T. Schreiber always picks profound plays and puts up high-value productions with excellent direction. I will continue to see their work and encourage all theater lovers to check out this studio. The props and fight choreography deserve a special mention."
"I have seen other productions at T. Schreiber Studio and they always do a good job. This was probably the best I've seen thereGo see this play. It's a really worthwhile theatrical experience. I will remember it for a long time."
 
"This was a wonderfully acted production. Each cast member made big, brave, believable choices. They were all fascinating and compelling to watch. See it!"

Special thanks to Peter for his excellent direction, and the talented cast and crew!  To my mother for being the anchor of love to me and my family. My heart to all those just trying to make it a day at a time.
